A still from a YouTube video showing the handwritten menu given to passenger Rius Vernandes on a Garuda flight . Rius Vernandes, a popular vlogger, posted a video on Saturday showing the menu written on a piece of notebook paper. He is now being sued for defamation after the post went viral

Two days after Mr Vernandes shared the post he uploaded another image of a letter from Indonesian police stating that he and his fiancee were being sued for defamation by the airline.

Writing on social media, Mr Vernandes said he initially received an apology from Garuda after sharing this post.

The airline said there had been a mistake and the menus were not meant for passengers.

'Garuda Indonesia apologised [to me] regarding this matter. I really wasn't mad or anything. I was just doing my job as an airline reviewer. Sharing whatever that was going on in the plane. That's it,' Mr Vernandes said on Instagram.

Garuda later published a tweet further clarifying the situation.

'We would like to convey that this wasn't a menu card for passengers, but a personal note for flight attendants that wasn't supposed to be published. Thank you,' Garuda Indonesia wrote.

Mr Vernandes believed the whole ordeal was over but he later revealed that he and his fiancee were being sued for defamation over the post.

'We've been reported for defamation. I'm sure you know I had no intention whatsoever to defame anyone.

'I hope you can help share and support me through this problem because I don't want to see that, in the future, whenever we review something as is, whenever we give constructive criticism, we can be criminalised.'

In Indonesia, defamatory content posted online is a crime which is punishable by up to four years in prison.

Since Mr Vernandes took a photo of their menu, Garuda Indonesia has instructed cabin crew to prohibit passengers from taking photos or video during a flight.

They later stated they had withdrawn the new policy, but said passengers will be advised respect the privacy of other passengers and to not take photos while flying.

'Passengers can take photos for personal use such as selfies as long as they do not inconvenience other passengers,' the company's spokesman Ikhsan Rosan told Straits Times.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Garuda Indonesia for comment.
